TROON GOLF PRESERVES A FAMILY HERITAGE AT ROBINSON RANCH

Posted on July 25, 2001

36 Hole, Daily Fee Facility Just North of Los Angeles

Scottsdale, Arizona - Troon Golf, the world leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing, is stepping back in time to recapture the best of that "Old West" flavor with its most recent management acquisition, Robinson Ranch, an adventuresome 36-hole facility in Santa Clarita, California, located 25 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.

Developed by the renowned golf course architect Ted Robinson Sr. and his son, Ted Jr., who together comprise Robinson Golf, Inc. - Robinson Ranch stands as a personal tribute to their family ancestors who crossed the Sierra Nevada on foot moving cattle and eventually founded this remarkable property. Father and son have designed Robinson Ranch to celebrate their heritage with a glimpse of the property as it was in its formative years.

"It is very important that we restore our Western heritage and the sense of history that has been lost to today's fast-paced world," stated Ted Robinson, Sr. "We chose Troon Golf to help us preserve these old traditions. They understand our mission well enough to carefully blend their expertise of the modern golf market without disrupting our feel for the past."

Situated on 400 acres of rolling terrain above the Santa Clarita Valley, Robinson offers two diverse layouts on the old homestead. The golf courses spread over 180 acres marked by rock outcroppings and a dry streambed. Fifty acres are allocated for custom home sites, with the remaining acreage left in its natural state.

Stretching over 6,500 yards, the Mountain Course is a pure test of course management. At nearly 7,000 yards from the back tees, the Valley Course eases through the sage and chaparral below with fairways lined with California Sycamores and Coastal Live Oaks. The more demanding Valley Course calls for strong precise shots, particularly on the last six holes known as "Death Row."

Meanwhile back at the Ranch, the much-anticipated 26,000 square-foot clubhouse is scheduled to open in fall 2001. The exquisite two-story structure features a stunning waterfall that will cascade from the top floor, down the wall, across the cart path and pool, and behind the beautiful 18th green of the Valley Course. The spacious banquet room will accommodate up to 300 guests, with the full capability to host premier events such as weddings and receptions, golf tournaments, corporate meetings and events, and social gatherings.

"We deeply appreciate this opportunity to work with the Robinsons to present both a tremendous golf experience and a nostalgic look back to the time their family first settled in this area," stated Dana Garmany, Troon Golf chairman and chief executive officer. "As Troon Golf was founded in the high Arizona desert north of Scottsdale, we enjoy a little of that ‘Old West' flavor ourselves."

Ted Robinson Sr. has designed over 170 golf courses throughout the world that include Indian Wells Country Club in Southern California, The Experience at Koele on Lanai in Hawaii, and Lakewood Oiso in Japan.

Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, Troon Golf represents nearly 90 management and development contracts in 18 states and nine countries. Troon Golf development properties include Turnberry Hotel, Golf Courses & Spa, A Westin Resort, Ayrshire, Scotland; Cabo del Sol, Los Cabos, Mexico; Troon North Golf Club, Scottsdale, Arizona; The Crosby National Golf Club, San Diego, California; Shadow Lakes Golf Club, Brentwood, California; and Old Works, Anaconda, Montana.
